Renault is introducing the Twingo Renaultsport 133 this spring. On April 2, the French automaker will open the order books for this enhanced model that has a price tag of £13,565 on-the-road. The revisions to the facelifted Renaultsport version of the Twingo are instantly obvious at the front (such as the new Renault visual identity of its more modest sibling).
Its appearance is improved with a new dynamic grille design with four lights and a front bumper that uses an F1-style blade. This particular detail, which can be seen throughout the entire Renaultsport range, is inspired by Renault’s prowess in Formula 1.
This halo model in the city car lineup gets some model-specific details at the back such as a black rear spoiler, a special rear bumper that uses a diffuser and aerodynamic extensions on the rear wheel arches.
From the interior, the flagship Twingo gets Renaultsport yellow stitching on the steering wheel and seats as well as white detailing for the top of the steering wheel, seat backs and cushions, rev-counter surround and air conditioning controls.
In addition, it is equipped with a new body-color F1-style blade and core equipment on the newest modified Renaultsport that includes a set of 16” alloy wheels, Bluetooth, cruise control, electric Gloss Black door mirrors, ESC (with on/off switch), speed limiter, extra tinted windows and tailgate, Renaultsport exhaust with chrome tailpipe, plus Twingo’s versatile independent sliding and folding rear seats.
There are numerous options offered for this model. The most exciting ones are 17” Anthracite or Gloss Black alloy wheels that cost £500, curtain airbags for £250, metallic paint at £460, or the Renaultsport Liquid Yellow i.d. paint that’s priced £1,300 (which will become available towards the end of May 2012).
For just £125, the buyers get the Renaultsport Monitor telemetry system that’s unique for its class. Only one exterior pack is offered for the front blade, door mirrors covers and rear spoiler dubbed Anthracite Style. This is priced at £150.
